***** Summary *****
Offered for your consideration is a Kodak Vest Pocket Camera that's in great condition! It uses 127 film and it appears to be in good working order. This is not tested, of course, but the shutter works with the shutter release, the adjustments on the front work, and I would be curious to see if it actually takes photos! Actually, it is already loaded with film and has some shots already exposed! I don't know what the shots are, as I purchased it in this condition -- you could get the film developed and consider this a treasure hunt -- you never know what you'll find! I have no clue as to the actual value of this camera, so please make a reasonable offer if you're interested.
***** Details *****
Physically, the camera is in amazingly good condition considering its age, with minor marks and scrapes as shown in the many photos. The front plate extends easily and the bellows appears to be in good condition. The side panel can be removed to replace the film, with the "open/lock" slider switch, but I didn't open it because there's already film in there..... The shutter speed and aperture adjustments above and below the lens both work well. The aperture can be seen to open and close. The lens filter can easily be removed (please see the filter in photo 4 and removed in photo 5). Please view all the photos, please enlarge them to get a closer view, and please ask any questions. I do not know the history of this camera, as I recently purchased it in a bulk lot, however I will do my best to answer your questions.
This sale includes only the camera body and case, and no other item. The camera was made in USA and the serial number is 153506. Because this is a used camera, and because it's so old, I cannot offer any type of warranty.
